PR: Mingus Mountain GOP Endorses Beauchamp at CD-1 Debate


Mingus Mountain Republican Club Sponsors CD-1 Debate – Club Endorses Beauchamp

For Immediate Release: October 14, 2009

(Cottonwood, AZ) – The Mingus Mountain Republican Club sponsored the first CD-1 debate for Republican candidates seeking to unseat Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Flagstaff). The debate was held at Murphy’s Grill in Cottonwood on Wednesday, October 13, 2009 at 11:30 AM. The three candidates, Bradley Beauchamp from Globe, Paul Gosar from Flagstaff, and Rusty Bowers from Mesa, each were given 10 minutes for opening remarks. The audience then asked questions of the candidates for 40 minutes. Topics included the economy, the military, immigration, the role of the federal government, health care, and the Constitution.

The Mingus Mountain Republican Club endorsed Bradley Beauchamp for CD-1. Mingus Mountain Club President Dan McIlroy said, “Bradley is clearly the best candidate of the three. He knows the Constitution and has the ability to defend it in the halls of Congress. Our current representative seems to do the bidding of the Democrat leadership rather than listening to the citizens of the district. Bradley listens to the citizens and will never walk away from those citizens. Bradley is our choice for Congress.”

CD-1 is one of the largest congressional districts in the country, covering an area larger than the state of New York. CD-1 is made up of Apache, Coconino, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, Navajo, Yavapai, and western Pinal counties.
